Amended Schedule 2 of the Electricity Regulation Act (ERA) 4 of 2006

Last updated: 27 October 2021

South Africa will increase the license threshold of 1 MW to 100 MW, exempting embedded electricity generating companies and projects below this limit from licensing obligations from the National Energy Regulator. Only registration with the Regulator of South Africa will be required.


The new legislation aims at stimulating investments in new electricity generation, contributing to national energy security as surplus production is expected to be reinjected to the national grid.
